A collective set up for victims of the natural disaster

A collective set up for victims of the natural disaster - Despite the recognition of a state of natural disaster, after the bad weather in the region in November last year, it’s been reported that disaster victims "cannot be reimbursed for the damage".

The situation has led to one resident in Drap starting a “collective”. Since the beginning of the month, the 64-year-old retired health executive has been attempting to bring the situation to the authorities attention. A problem facing many residents.

Drap, was recognized as a state of natural disaster following the weekend of extraordinary weather conditions which fell on November 23rd and 24th. However, disaster victims are told that their insurance will not cover the damage.

According to reports this would be because the law only includes floods and mudslides. But not ground movements. In response to the matter a meeting is being held this evening Thursday 13th February at 7 p.m., in the town hall, in collaboration with the local council in the presence of a lawyer, who will defend the rights of the collective, a mediator and the planning assistant.
